. john king, what have you been finding on that question? we've been hearing that question from more and more people. >> let's hope with six days to go, five full days to work that utility officials and state and local officials get most of this fixed. if you look at the map the areas that are not green have been impacted by superstorm sandy when it comes to power outages. deb feyerick was talking about the new york city area. the darker the color the higher number of people without power. new york you move down to the state of new jersey, incredibly hard hit along the shoreline. we know new york and new jersey likely to go democratic. let's walk over to the state of pennsylvania and look at this, you see this down here, let me help you understand this chart a little bit. i'm going to pop it out and this explains the darker the color the higher the number of people without power so as we come back to the state of pennsylvania i want to show you something. if you look it's obvious to the naked eye in this area here is where you see more people without power, scranton a lentown, readin
borger, david gergen and chief national correspondent, john king. john, the campaigns say they are ready for late night waiting for ohio returns. what do the latest polls tell us? >> if you look at our new poll today, it tells you the campaigns are right. we've got essentially a dead heat. the president has a 50% to 47% for governor romney lead among likely voters. that's within the margin of error. if you look deep into the poll, they're tied among independents. the president is doing very well in cleveland and columbus, where he has to do well. governor romney's doing pretty well down here in the southwest corner of the state where i am and in the rural areas. where he needs to do well. both candidates are doing well where they need to do well. now they're just trying to turn up the energy and turn up the intensity which is why they're both here in the state today. they will both be back in the state today. if you look deep into our poll, you have a classic dead heat in the classic swing state. >> david, you were saying a couple days ago you thought the president was an odds-on favorit
national correspondent john king is joining us right now. he's in ohio as well. john, take us inside these numbers. >> wolf, they are fascinating when you look deep in this poll. the president you just showed he's here in ohio. governor romney will be here tontd. they expect some 35,000 republicans at his rally. in this part of the state i'm in cincinnati tonight. when you look deep in our poll you see this one will be fought out through the last poll closing on election night. look at these two candidates among independents. governor romney with a slight edge 48% to 46%. again, that's a statistical tie well within the margin of error. the auto bailout is one of the things the president thinks will help him here in ohio. you heard him mention that in this speech. look at this in the industrial northern part of the state, across northern ohio where you have many auto-related direct factory plants, the president leads 52% to 45%. some evidence there especially among white blue collar workers the president is doing better than he might have done otherwise without the auto bailout. what
and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> reporter: john king at that debate back in 2011. yesterday mitt romney at a campaign event converted to a disaster relief event in ohio and was asked by reporters a number of times about what he would do with fema. take a listen to what he said. >> reporter: governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> reporter: what would you do with fema? >> you can see he didn't say much to those questions. the campaign says it would be better for the state to be in charge of disaster relief. >> paul steinhouser, thank you so much. in the next half hour, we'll break down the final six days of the presidential campaign with the former senior adviser to bill clinton and will cain from theblaze.com. >>> like something out of the 1970s, gas is hard to get in storm-ravaged areas. we'll have much more coming up. at shell, we believe the world needs a broader mix of energies. that's why we're supplying natural gas to generate cleaner electricity... that has around 50% fewer co2 emissions than coal. and it's also why, with our pa
correspondent john king is in denver for us right now. john, you're taking a closer look at this poll. what else are you finding? >> reporter: wolf, because of that dead heat you can feel the intensity as both campaigns try to gin upturnout including in the early voting period which ends tomorrow here in colorado. both candidates doing well where they need to, you might say a slight edge for the president. i'll show you what i mean. in denver and bolder, the two biggest urban areas in the state of colorado, more democratic voters. 63% for the president, 34% for governor romney in the urban areas of denver and bolder. that's what the president needs to keep for turnout on election day. suburbs a smaller but significant advantage for the president in the denver suburbs. 53% to 45% for governor romney. if you look at the more rural, conservative, the rest of colorado, that's why governor romney's in this race. he's getting 55% of the vote to 43% for the president in the rest of the state. as you know the state well, wolf, the president is here today. governor romney is due back on saturday. the pre
. >> for this particular news cycle. >> it is. john king interrupts him and says even for disaster relief and he continues on saying it's immoral and makes no sense. >> that's the wonderful version of ideological consistency that occasionally erupts in republican primaries. when they're going way over into territory, which is what we was trying to do. we'll see how he handles the -- be that video fwigz to be on a loop on this network and others for the next couple days. >> and you know, steve, i want to ask you in terms of looking -- we don't know the effects of the storm and its toll will be and we are concerned about the damage that it may cause and the lives that may be lost and any victims that are in the way of the storm, but in terms of the campaign, the fact that we are one week out from the election, the question is, how does each candidate account for this? and it looks like obama is going to stay in washington, take on the role of commander in chief as he probably has to. the bigger question is, what does mitt romney do? how does he -- what does had he do as far as the optics of looking like he'
in that primary debate that john king moderated where he was asked specifically about fema. he said anything that the federal government does that can be transferred to the states are better yet to the private sector. that's the right direction. so it leaves open the question of exactly what role he sees for fema. fema has been a controversial agency such as their delivery of services after katrina. however it's pretty popular when it comes in and helps and picks up the costs in the aftermath of disasters like this one. so i think it's a question that i would expect governor romney feel that he needs to say some words about. maybe today about what role he would see for the federal government for fema if he were president in natural disasters like this one. >> all this goes back to what mitt romney said in one of the early primary debates. i want to play that now. >> every time you have an occasion, you take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. we
it turn now to our chief national correspondent john king, who is in southwest of me, in the town of cincinnati, ohio. so, john, it is very good to see you. i've been wanting to talk to you about this for a while now. so mitt romney is there, going to be there later on. and he is in -- going to be in ohio. was in wisconsin earlier. the latest cnn poll of polls shows that obama is up by 3 points. so take a look at that. what can we read, if anything, into those numbers? is that sort of within the margin of error or not? is it enough to -- for the obama campaign to feel safe or no? >> well, it is close enough, don, for the romney campaign to overcome an election day if they have a significant turnout. a significant intensity, a significant energy event. one of the things that is interesting about ohio, some of the other swing states have gone up and down. the president was up 3, then tide, then governor up was up 1 or 2 or the president's lead has fluctuated. ohio has been steady throughout the general election season. if you go back to april, we knew governor romney would be the no
. >> it's worth repeating the debate. john king asked if disaster relief would be better handled by the states. quote, absolutely. any time you have occasion to send it back to the states, that's the right direction. yesterday changing his story a bit. >> yeah. you know, when we screwed up in newspapers, we would call them clarifications, not corrections. this has taken them 48 hours to come up with a statement of the status quo. states take the lead. fema gets the funding it needs. it wasn't just that back in the debate he said states should take the lead on everything. he said that borrowing money for fema was immoral. it was a moral issue. that that question was of great immoral value to him in looking after hurricane victims. and maybe that's one of the reasons why if you look at the poll numbers, we just got some interesting poll numbers from "the washington post" yesterday, 78% of americans approve of the president's handling. of this disaster. and it's about half that level for mitt romney. in a very close election. when you've got an incumbent getting 78% approval for any
